They are based in countries worldwide, including the U.S., U.K., Czech Republic, India, Vietnam and South Korea.
About 250 research papers were presented on the latest technology application cases related to digital transformation, smart factories, energy management systems and more. Afterward, those who presented outstanding research papers in 12 areas, including machinery, materials, and electrical and electronics, were awarded a plaque and prize money.
The forum also featured special lectures given by prominent guest speakers and a symposium on the latest industrial technology trends that are driven by artificial intelligence, 3D printing and 5G networks.
